A work in progress

Well this Blogging thing is new to me, and it's definitely a work in progress.

My kids and I did get to go see Transformers this week. My (15 year old boy and 20 year old girl) loved it! I was umm...a wee bit bored by it. My daughter said I wasn't enough of a guy (?!?) to enjoy it. Okay, I'll buy that, I think...

Anyway, no new jewelry this week, but I've been relisting some items, and I do have several works in progress...beadwork items 1/2 completed, strung necklaces I'm not sure how I want to finish, etc...I'll try to get to them this week while my son is off at band camp. :) In the meantime, here's a dragon pendant I made, inspired by Christi Friesen's work!

I wonder

I wonder what the kid in the car next to me blasting his rap music yesterday thought of the country music I was blasting...Trace Adkins "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" /giggle
I also listen to 80's rock quite a bit, but that's my 15 year old son's favorite, so I mainly wait till he's in the car to listen to it, and he rides with me quite a bit. When my country station is on he asks me if he can change the station...

Anyway, I've been trying to get myself in the mood to make something for my shop, specially since I've sold a few items lately, but still can't find the energy-it's too hot here in North Carolina to do anything!

I did find these earrings that I had made before and decided to post them yesterday, I love brickstitch earrings, and these are pegasus-too cool! :)

Hello, and good morning!

Since I've joined the Etsy Boomers Street Team (I still prefer Still Alive and Kicking /giggle), I figured I would feature artists from our team on here, when I have time, and today is lfaigen's birthday, so I figured I would feature a couple of items from their shop. http://lfaigen.etsy.com/

Now, I really need to get to work on my jewelry, but it's summertime and I get lazy! I can say that I'm too busy actually, my 15 year old boy has band practice all this week and I have to drive him back and forth-lol! (We live in the country, so it's not a small drive). He plays percussion and really wants his own drum set, he's seen a set by pearl that's black on black that he's been drooling all over...he has been in the band at school for 5 years, I know it's something he's going to stick with. Heck, I've been drooling all over that drumset-and I can't even play-it's gorgeous! :) He has band camp next week, so I guess I will have no excuse then. Although I did promise that I would take him and my 20 year old daughter to see Transformers this week. My daughter is really anxious to see it.
Okay, time to get off the computer and start drooling over my beads...I mean creating something with them...ah heck, I prefer just drooling over them-I love shiney things!

Good Morning!

Good Morning!

Going to take a little break from talking about jewelry today, okay I'll probably do it before this blog entry is over-forgive me, I am obsessed with beads!
Well, yesterday my (older) children and myself went to see Chuck and Larry, and it was much better than I anticipated that it would be. My son said it was his favorite movie of the summer, and we went to see Harry Potter last week, and we've seen Pirates of the Carribean. I told him it wasn't my favorite-but it was in the top three-heehee! :)
Okies, on to jewelry, hmm...I really need to get busy and make some new items for my shop, but I'm a mom and therefore a chauffeur, and my life is rather busy driving my boy to and from all his activities.
I'm joining a new street team on etsy, of Baby Boomers, we're deciding on a name for a street team now, I really wanted it to be Still Alive and Kicking Etsy Street Team, but I think the majority of the vote is leaning towards Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team-I guess BBEST is a better acronym than SAKST anyway. :P

By the way I will feature work from other artists from time to time, look at this gorgeous hair wreath from Alteredevents, if I'm ever dumb enough to get married again, I will be shopping in her store! :) Her store is http://alteredevents.etsy.com/
